Andy Murray played his third match of the week at the Battle of the Brits winning against James Ward to progress having lost out to Kyle Edmund.

Murray defeated Ward 6-3, 7-5 coming from a break down in the second to claim the victory and afterwards, he discussed the conditions and how as a result he was glad to get through.

“It’s been tough, it’s been unbelievably hot conditions in here,” said Murray.

“I know it’s not the worst situation to be in but usually if you’re playing a match you’ll find a cold space to go to and build up to the match and dropping your body temperature.

“But here there’s no air conditioning allowed, it’s pretty hot everywhere and it’s quite draining.

“I’ve been feeling it a little bit and obviously I’ve played three matches, the last two were a pretty high level, it’s been tough but I did quite well.”
